1. A vehicle memory mirror system, comprising:

  • a vehicle mirror assembly including a reflective element, a motor for positioning said reflective element about an axis, a monitor for monitoring the position of said reflective element with respect to said axis and a mirror-based control operatively connected with said motor and said monitor in order to position said reflective element at a particular position with respect to said axis;

    a control module interconnected with said mirror-based control by an analog interface, said control module including a processor for providing analog signals on said analog interface indicative of a desired position of said reflective element with respect to said axis;

    wherein said mirror-based control includes a position controller which compares analog signals on said analog interface with a signal produced by said monitor in order to operate said motor and thereby position said reflective element at said desired position; and

    wherein said vehicle mirror assembly includes at least one accessory and wherein said mirror-based control performs at least one of decoding analog signals on said analog interface and encoding analog signals on said analog interface in order to selectively operate said at least one accessory.
